After our meeting with Professor Gupta in Ahmedabad, from Honey Bee Network we have been fortunate to participate in the Innovation Festival (Festival of Grassroot Innovation) in Delhi.
And we were invited to the inauguration of the festival, by the Indian President himself, and in one of his houses !!!
On this occasion, we realized that despite the many social challenges that knows the country, leaders try to be invested to change some things (even if the President is rather an honorary title in India).
For a whole week, the focus was on actors who innovate to change things for the base of the pyramid. It was often very simple ideas and small scale but with an immediate impact on improving the living conditions of people in rural areas.
